“We really enjoyed your leadership and input and I think it’s done the world of good for the team. One person in particular seems to have been really spurred on by it. It did the job of team-building and motivating but also and very importantly helped people to understand each other better.”

University of Birmingham, Team Building day

“A thoroughly enjoyable day, and one that was enjoyed by everyone. All of the objectives were met. I felt that as the day wore on we started to really gel as a team, and actually helping each other to ensure we all achieved as a team. The fun element was certainly there right throughout the day, and into the evening. The whole experience was fantastic. I also thought the knowledge you shared with us, not only in the navigational skills but also about the area, flora, fauna etc was tremendous. A big thank you to you both, we will definitely be back for another adventure into the dales.”

Barclays Bank, team building day

“Thanks Mark, the guys really enjoyed the day. Many said it was the best event we’ve done, and we’ve done a few!! Met all my expectations and more. Thanks again to you and Richard.”

Sheila Mowatt, UNIVAR Europe, December 2009

“I enjoyed the walk, the company and then listening to everyone laugh after the rather wet and wild experience!”

Michelle Oliver, Intuitions, Harrogate

“Had a very enjoyable walk… Many thanks for the pictures, good company and the memories I took away with me from my lovely day out.”

Catherine Hicks, Christmas Pub Walk

“I learnt so much about map skills planning and map reading that I feel confident planning and leading walks.”

Jonathan Walker, NNAS Bronze Award

“The walk last week was the fourth one I’ve done with you in the setting of being a team member or taking my own team out; each of the four has been an inspirational day that provides the opportunity for reflection, breaks down the normal work barriers and lives long in the individual and collective memory for those involved.”

Kuehne & Nagel Ltd, Team Building day

“Thank you so much for organising our team orienteering event – it was such a great day! I have had the best feedback from any of my team building days. It really brought us all together and really helped break down work barriers. I will recommend you internally to colleagues and other PA’s, as I really think this is a great team building day!”

M&G Investments

“I wanted to thank you for your expertise and attention to our team. You are a great walk leader and we got a lot out of both being out walking together and the exercises you gave us. Our team meetings have changed quite significantly and we have also scheduled in quarterly walks in London so we don’t lose the improvements we gained walking with you in Yorkshire.”

Catherine Nancekievill

“We all had a great time, with lots of good conversations, these certainly would not have happened in a meeting room!”

ARM Holdings

“Fantastic course, the best training I have ever been on. It has opened the door to the entire wilderness for me to enjoy, which I didn’t have the skills or confidence to venture into before, a bit of an epiphany.”
